My friends and I were all permanently crazed by the blotter from the Spectrum and JFK shows in Phlly from 86,87,88,89,90,91,etc does anyone have any non musical recordings of the parking lot scene outside? I am actually looking for half decent fidelity sound of the vendors and the partying and clickety clack of the police on horses and the festival type sounds I remember. Also, If anyone has recordings of a JG Tribute show at the Tower Theatre in which someone passed out and knocked over a bunch of mic stands in the taper area let me know. Oh and there was a JGB show at the Music Pier in Ocean City, NJ around 1997 that I was supposed to go to but wound up in the hospital for a month. Any info or links on that show would be great.<BR><BR>Thanks<BR><BR>This post was modified by Telephone Toughguy on 2012-07-16 01:30:31

North Carolina, no I am in Germany... my brother used to post his music on here but his log in apparently does not work anymore (although I heard he has sent emails regarding this untimely and problematic coincidence). I happened upon this digital memoir which tells of the tale of the man you speak of... may he return one day to make the forests echo with laughter. I do recall him mentioning you and he held in the highest regards.<BR><BR>Cheers old pal.

Strangest request I have ever heard. Are u like from CNN or a cop? I am sure someone walking around with a mic would be met with some skepticism, media types looking to exploit or otherwise slander Deadheads. My suggestion is to stick with what was happening "On-Stage" Theres like 2800 shows here. Enjoy.

CNN or COP? Please, the fact that old heads are on computers posting on the internet is proof of how wrong and dangerous stereotypes are... People with microphones recording stuff at a dead show is normal inside but weird outside? That's an odd paradox to me. There has to be someone who was partying or just hanging out and not out to arrest people or "defame deadheads" who was an audio nerd or sound artist with a tape recorder. I listen to the shows on here and they are great but they are not mine so I cannot chop them up make something with them. I have plenty of GD to listen to, I am more into creating it now though. I need something to create a soundscape to replicate a walk through a dead show parking lot in the late 80's to early 90's. It could be other bands but it dod not have the same vibe. I know some of you know what I am talking about and see where I am going with this. Thanks for all the advice... keep an ear out for me... <BR> <BR>By the way CNN is a tool of the super governmentalists like Al Gore's wife who tried to censor all of our music not too long ago. How soon we forget.

No worries. Watch the whole thing, it's worth it; there's a memorable breakdown during the "Brokedown" encore...I don't think your request was "strange," in fact I'd love to see more lot sights and sounds. Good luck with your work, and please post it for all to see when you're done...

OK, we are getting warmer! This is close to what we need. Take this raw footage, minus the added music and add an urban east coast twist and that is exactly what is required for the project. The era is right on... it definitely has the vibe. Thanks.. maybe the poster has some stock soundtrack.. hey wait there was a part at around 5:40 where the music stopped and the camera zoomed on the TV, you could still hear the band but it was muffled... I can digitally create the whole thing if I want to but I like authenticity... hey there was even a horse on pavement... this is damn close, thanks! Nice little piece of video... I know that guy in the tie dye...

I don't know about CNN and supergovernments, but I do know that Al & Tipper Gore are friends and fans of the Grateful Dead. Hell, Tipper has jammed with Mickey Hart on several occaisons, and yes, she is a drummer. One tour when the Dead were in DC and Bill & Hillary were out of town Al & Tipper entertained the Grateful Dead at the White House! At first I thought the same about the censorship issue, but I found that Tipper did not wish to censor music at all. Her concern was young kids hearing sexually explicit and other lryical content that maybe young kids might be better not hearing. Parents call, that's all. I may not have phrased that quite right but I hope you catch my drift. You have parental blocks so your kids can't watch porn on tv (or is that a supergovernment plot?), same difference. Turn on your local hiphop station tonight and see how suggestive some of the "clean" radio versions are, and maybe you will see why there are "parental advisory" stickers on cd's. That is all she wanted was a rating system similar to movies. I sell cd's for a living and a lot of parents let their kids buy the music anyway, some don't, but many do! Do you want your 11 year old kid to be able to buy xxx porno movies? Same difference, more or less. Don't get me wrong, I am opposed to any censorship of anything, and I think (hope) most of the others on this forum agree, but some things just aren't for kids. Please do your research before you slam anyone, especially someone that IS on our side...

This is definitely one of the oddest requests I've seen in quite some time. If one was successful in getting their hands on a passable copy of such a recording, I'm afraid they might be dissapointed in what they hear, especially if it's after the show. While you're there, everything sounds clear and intellectually stimulating on many different levels, especially after the show when just about everyone is attempting to reconnect their domes to their bodies. At this time, I fear that to any outside viewer/listener especially when not actually there, it might just seem like a group of smelly and very loud individuals pontificating about how everything is the "best" and how yellow your shoes appear to be. Now maybe I could be wrong on this, but the parking lot scenes to me seem like something you HAD to be there to comprehend, with each one having a slightly different and personal vibe to it that was a direct reflection of what has happened in the arena/theater/outdoor amphitheater. I know that the pre and post show gatherings were some of my most cherished times outside of the show itself; a chance to communicate with folks who were all in the exact same place figuratively as I was. How would this transfer onto tape? Not sure, but I think for me that I'd like to keep those memories as they are but if I ever come across something like you are looking for, I will send it on, I'll just refrain from listening/watching it myself, but that's just me. To quote Glenda The Good Witch "I hope you find what you're looking for." At least I think it was her.

There is a dvd called "End of the Road" from 1995 that has a lot of parking lot stuff. I agree, a strange request, but check it out.

Thanks for the feedback... I fail to see how this would be considered a "strange request" considering the context of this site (aside from the deadshow forums which I consider an anomoly here myself). I found this site coming from Ourmedia where my musical partners and I publish our music under CC license. I contribute original audio recordings for NoiseCollector's "songs" which contain original music and actual recorded sounds of nostalgic and historic items relevant to the topic of the song. Like a photo album or family 8MM film is to the normal person, so a recording of the ambience of a parking lot or an argument at a band practice is to me. The way most posters in the GD forum revel over shows, I yearn for audio snapshots of things I missed or witnessed that, as time passes, fade into history... or non history. <BR> <BR>I will check out that DVD but it probably has copyright issues. I need CC licensed 2.5 or similar stuff that only requires attribution. I find it hard to believe that no one had a tape recorder running outside at an east coast show. I am looking specifically the following things: <BR> <BR>Vendors-Hot pretzels, cold beer here (philly thing) <BR>Antics- people meeting at the rocky statue, hooting, laughing, etc. <BR>The muffled reverberated sound of the band playing and people rushing towards the door. <BR>People saying they need a miracle. <BR>People saying they are looking for the "Fun guys"... <BR>Nitrous tanks- PHSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS <BR>Beer coolers and hot dog grills- going... etc... <BR> <BR>I consider it an audio documentary for a future concept album. Our circle of friends were heavily influenced by shows in the late 80's and early 90's. We didn't always make it inside and sometimes didn't try. The experience was always unique though and is something I have no record of except for an occasional picture like this: <BR> <BR><a href="http://myspace-966.vo.llnwd.net/00656/66/99/656629966_l.jpg" target="_blank">http://myspace-966.vo.llnwd.net/00656/66/99/656629966_l.jpg</a> <BR> <BR>Thanks for the advice, let me know if anyone has anything like this and if they can please post it. <BR> <BR>
